What should I be doing during the summer before my senior year?

Hey everyone! As my junior year is coming to an end, I'm wondering what I should be doing during the summer to prepare for college applications. Do you have any suggestions for things that I should focus on to make the most of my time? Thank you in advance!

Hello! It's great to see that you're thinking ahead and planning for the summer before your senior year. My child went through the same process not too long ago, and based on their experience, I have a few suggestions for you. First, consider working on your college essay. It's a crucial part of the application, and starting early will give you enough time to revise and perfect it. Second, research colleges that interest you and make a list of the ones you'd like to apply to. Third, if you haven't already, try to visit college campuses (in-person or virtually) to get a better feel for the environment. Lastly, don't forget to enjoy your summer. Engage in activities or hobbies that you're passionate about, as they can make you a more well-rounded applicant. Best of luck!
